A new shape, and a commission for Russia…

I am finally getting out of the disk rut I have been stuck in for a while, by practicing my stringer work on some curved surfaced beads. I’m enjoying building up the layers of colour on them, but they are pretty big, so take a while to do. In other news, I have some silver cored rings in the kiln, haven’t done any of them for ages! I’ll let you know how they turn out!

Also in the kiln is a massive 5mm holed bead collection for a lovely lady in Moscow. It was a pretty big order (60 beads!!) so it will take a few days to complete. Hopefully I can get a nice photo of them before they head to Russia!

I will leave you with some more images of decorated lentils…
You will be linked to my etsy shop if you click on the pictures.

Oh, and I’m going to the DJCAD Degree show today! I can’t believe its been a year since it was our show!! I will be back to report later!

Have a good one,

NYC

I have been on pinterest again, getting a bit nostalgic about my trip to New York City, almost four years ago, I can’t believe it has been that long! It definitely plays a part in what I am making even today though. I think some time with the sketchbook is needed this afternoon.

The few pieces I have made inspired by New York City recently are based around the heavy influence of graffiti in the city..

Revisiting Japanese Inspiration

I am planning a day of tea and sketchbooking tomorrow, a lovely day off!

A while ago…maybe 2 years…I did a project at college inspired by Japanese Haiku and Haiga. I think this is something I am definitely going to revisit tomorrow. I have been on Pinterest ‘pinning’ some potential sketchbook worthy images. What do you think?
